TWIGGY IN PASTEL GRADIENTS

When I first ordered this sweater, I didn't have any idea what I'd do with it. Simply fell in love with the cotton candy color scheme and called it a day! I'm a hardcore sucker for gradient fabrics... especially when they're pastel. Pretty much every characteristic this garment possessed (including the fact that it's a motherhonkin' sweater dress) coalesced into a fluid manifestation of wearable divinity that I can only describe as "God clothing." I tweeted about this phenomenon once, but I think you all thought I was kidding. That heavenly essence is REAL! And it just so happens to photograph extremely well. I held the sweater up to nearly everything in my closet, trying to find some decent layers to pile over and under it. Can you believe it? It's like my paisley blouse and knit cardigan were separated from this baby at birth. I went full force with the 60's theme, and instead of embracing Woodstock culture, I drew inspiration from icons like Twiggy, Edie, and... yes, Dianna Agron on the January 2012 cover of Nylon.








FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:
Sweater - Vintage, The Cobrashop
Blouse - Ralph Lauren
Necklaces - Adri Law and vintage
Sweater - Natural-Colour
Heels- Ralph Lauren

My sweater is from Nautral-Colour, just like the last little striped number I blogged about in December. Some day my sweater collection will be as impressive as the blazer section in my closet. Too bad I live in the desert where sweaters RARELY come in handy. This one's especially practical because it's dress-length. Which means I can wear it sans pants, hallelujah! Functionality aside, the best darn thing about it is the gradient blue-to-pink color fade. Would you guys feel pissed if I repeated that five more times? Gradient blue-to-pink color fade. Gradient blue-to-pink color fade. Gradient blue-to-pink color fade. Gradient blue-to-pink color fade. Gradient blue-to-pink color fade. My autobiography: Gradient blue-to-pink color fade by Bebe Zeva, a Story About Life, Love, And Spirituality (because these threads make feel a teensy bit religious, y'all!) God clothing. It's a thing.










Everything is infinite,

Bebe Zeva

  7. This has to be one of your best outfits, in my opinion. The crazy clash of colors is simply the best. I could actually see this in an editorial shoot because, as you said, it photographs extremely well.

    One thing I really like what you're doing here is that you're going ALL OUT. You're not taking the easy, more subtle way of approaching this sweater, which would probably be wearing all black. That's too easy. So I just admire that you're not hesitant in pairing this with the craziest combination you could think of.

    If only Tommy Ton or Scott Schuman could have shot you on the street with this outfit. This would have looked STUNNING in action.

  23. I lovbe your style and your whole blog, but just as an open-minded comment I want to say I think you look really pretty with less makeup on. You used to wear less and it was still unique and I loved it then :) You're still pretty but you are even more beautiful when you loom natural. Just my opinion<3
